India thrash England in 3rd Test: Here're the records broken
India beat England on Day 5 of the third Test match held at Nottingham. The visitors, who came into the Test trailing England by a 0-2 margin, managed to pull one back. Set a target of 521 runs, Englishmen, except Stokes and Buttler, were no match to India's lethal bowling attack. India won the match by 203 runs. Here're the records broken.
This was India's 7th Test match versus England at Nottingham in their Test history. Out of these 7 matches, India have two wins, three draws and two losses. Prior to this victory, India won at Nottingham, in 2007, which helped them seal the series 1-0. In 2014, MS Dhoni-led India put in a commendable shift to draw the match.
England have now lost at least one Test in each of the home series starting against South Africa in 2017. The hosts notched their lowest-ever score (161) against India, at Nottingham, in the first innings. Their previous lowest score against India, at this venue, was 198 in 2007. Joe Root scored only 29 in this Test- his least in a match since July 2016.
Ishant Sharma joined Zaheer Khan to become the highest wicket taker, amongst Indian bowlers, at Nottingham. He also surpassed his best wickets tally against one nation in Tests. He now has 49 wickets against England, eclipsing his previous best of 48 against Australia.
Rishabh Pant overtook the likes of former India keepers Naren Tamhane, Nayan Mongia, Kiran More and Naman Ojha as the player with most dismissals on his debut Test. This was the second highest target set by India in SENA (South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia) countries (521). Their highest ever is 617 versus New Zealand at Wellington in 2009.
Kohli scored 200+ runs in this Test as well after Edgbaston. None of the other Indian batsmen have aggregated 200 runs across all three Tests combined. Hardik Pandya took 5/28 and scored 52*. With this, he joined the likes of Bhuvneshwar, Kapil Dev, Vinoo Mankad and Lala Amarnath as Indian players scoring a fifty and taking a 5-for in a Test match in England.
